comment:I had been looking for this lens for a quite a while and came across an incredble deal on craigslist locally.i couldnt pass it up. I knew i'd would have a longer reach due to me using it on my A77, but i find the range to be great, shooting wide open with this lens is a dream, the sharpness, colors,contrast are always spot on. I was impressed back when i had the CZ85, but this one really takes the cake. If you can get ur hands on one, do it. you wont regret it.
